Some sorting accomplished

I am so excited to share some of the sorting that is getting accomplished at our house. We have a functional office with two desks and a computer area with a working printer and a small book stand. I am even sitting here as I put together this post. The best thing is that the computer is finally at a height that doesn’t irritate my writs and my arms are able to lie flat and comfortably. Yipee! After a trip to the big city tomorrow where I hope to pick up two telephones that work  better than the old fashioned ones we are currently using, I should be able to even have a phone in here. If we get the window fixed on the door, it will really be a usable space. I am almost afraid to push myself into sewing some window coverings, but maybe that thought is what brings me to the other nearly functional spot.

This morning Paulina and I tackled the sewing center. I had been hoping for one of the bedrooms, but I am resigned to the idea that they need to be bedrooms. I came to that conclusion when I realized how ridiculous it is for me to try to do anything in a room without TV, other than use the computer that is. So, I cleared off the old library table of all desklike items. Next we cleaned up the floor, lots of dust bunnies around. Then we went to the basement and dug out the sewing cabinet.

I have had that cabinet almost as long as James and I are married. It was one of our very first purchases. We bought the machine and cabinet through the JC Penny’s catalog department in Mobridge, SD. The total cost was $300, with each item the machine and cabinet costing half. We have drug that thing from Eagle Butte, SD to Jamestown, ND and back here to Herreid. I cannot wait to start sorting those drawers on Saturday morning and start working on the fleece quilt again. It will be our first project to be finished in 2014. We hope, says Paulina.

    So how long have you been married? We’ve been 35 years. Question, since I forget these things so easily. Paulina is your daughter, right? Does she live with you, or just nearby?

      We are heading for year 32 in August. Paulina is our youngest and is in college right now, so home every weekend since we didn’t have the let go ability to send her far away. She keeps us young.

        You may have to remind me of this another ten times. But just for right now I have it in my head. Paulina. In college. Home weekends. Keeping you young. 🙂
